I started a Youtube channel?!

I realize I’ve been a bit quiet on here lately so I thought I would explain why I have been missing for a while.

I started a Youtube channel!

I started a channel a couple of months back and I’ve really been enjoying it but I admit I have sort of neglected my blog!

My first couple of videos were a vlog of my birthday trip to london and also a haul video for the same trip!

My most recent video is a video inspired by Carrie Hope Fletcher which is ‘A night in with me’.

I have plans for a lot of videos involving art, travel and beauty!

Check out my channel and let me know what you think!

Summer Wardrobe Essentials

Whole items

Denim Jacket – Marks and Spencer £29.50

Denim Jacket

In the summer a denim jacket is a requirement! It’s perfect as you don’t get too warm and if the temperature does drop it keeps you warm. This one from Marks and spencers is perfect for the season! And at £29 it’s a bargain!

Floral Wedges – Toms – £54.99

Shoes

A new Summer brings in a new pair of wedges and this summer my new pair are these beautifully floral wedges from Toms! Also a peep toe for the summer is a must so these shoes fulfill every requirement!

Sunglasses – Ray-Ban Clubround – £134

Sunglasses

Of course in the Summer we need our shades! MY go to brand for shades is Ray-Ban! They’re modern, sleek and effortlessly cool! These Clubrounds are typical Ray-Ban and perfect for not just summer but all year round!

Embroidered Back Maxi Dress – Sans Souci – £22.99

 

 

I typically buy a few new dresses in summer and the type I buy the most of is maxi dresses! This one is literally the most beautiful maxi dress I have ever seen! The embroidery detail on the back of the dress is so pretty!

Freedom Pro Lipstick Retro Mattes

I am a self confessed lipstick hoarder. I probably have every color lipstick Red, Pink, Purple you name it I have it. So when I went into Superdrug and found these little sets I was overjoyed!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

I love the packaging! It’s small, cute and modern! When you first look at the packages you may think they are only small but the lipsticks are full size! Their are a few collections to choose from such as Noir Mattes, Galaxy Lip and Naked Mattes. I chose to try the Retro Mattes collection.

Processed with VSCO with  preset

You get 5 full size lipsticks in each set. In the Retro Matte set you get 2 red shades, light pink, purple and a fuchsia shade. Again the packaging is quite modern and cute.

Processed with VSCO with  preset IMAG3371

The shades are a perfect variety for all occasions and seasons! My favorite shade is the shade ‘Memory’. The only negative thing I would have to say is that I can’t tell much difference between the two red shades.

IMG_20170531_163808_800

The results! The application is smooth and sleek. The red is a little bit messy but with a little bit of tidying is a pop of delight! My favorite results is ‘Nostalgia’ or ‘Memory’

Overall I love this set! For £5 this is a serious bargain and I’m already trying to decide which set to buy next! Let me know if you have tried this set!

OOTD Special! Boutique of Molly

Today’s fashion post is a special OOTD post dedicated to a dress I bought from a super cute site called Boutique of Molly!The first thing that’s so pretty is the pink parcel your order comes in! It adds just a little bit more excitement!

IMG_20170425_142434_597

The dress I bought was the Asia dress and it’s so gorgeous! The main colour is white but it has blue patterns and blue tassels on the side. The material is so light and comfortable and is perfect for the current weather!

Their are some really cute details on this dress! First is the waist cute out detail so it shows some skin but only a peek! The second is the lace up side detail which again shows a bit of skin but more of a tease. The third detail is the blue tassels! There just so cute!

IMG_20170510_141934

I paired the dress with my New Look Denim Jacket and the combination works so well! You can’t see the shoes I paired the outfit with in the picture but I paired them with a pair of Suede block heel sandals from New Look!

Daily Skin Care Routine – Morning/Day

It’s Monday which means today is a beauty post! Today’s post is all about my daily skin care routine! My skin can be very sensitive to products and the smallest bit of moisturizer can cause break out but with this skin care routine my skin is clear and smooth

     1. Cleanser – Garnier Micella Cleansing Water

        IMG_20170228_040934_1

I’v tried quite a few cleansing products for my skin and they never really gave me that cleansed feeling. So when I tried the Garnier Michellar Water I was so happy! It gave my skin a proper cleanse but didn’t dry it out! This is always the first thing I use in the morning!

2. Toner – Simple Soothing Facial Toner

Toner

To get the little bits of dirt or make up left I use Simple’s Facial Toner. Although MY cleanser works pretty well I like to make sure I get the small specs that sometimes cleanser can’t get and this toner works really well on picking them up.

3. Superdrug SPF Moisturizing Day Cream

Superdrug cream

My skin is so sensitive to moisturizer so when I tried Superdrug’s own brand I was taking a risk but for £2.99 it was worth the risk! Luckily this moisturizer worked so well and made my skin so soft! The bonus to this moisturizer is that is has SPF 15 in so it gives you protection too!

4. Lip Butter – Nivea Vanilla and Macadamia

Lip Butter

The last thing in my daytime skin care routine is lip care. I’m very lucky that my lips don’t chap often but I do like to make sure they are moisturized. The Nivea lip butter is so nice! It gives the lips that silky soft feeling and smell is divine! I apply this every couple of hours just to give my lips a bit of a top up!

Hope you’ve all enjoyed this read of my day time skin care routine! Let me know what you use in your skin care routine!

The Mini Collection

Nivea Pearl Shine Lip balm

My lips can get dry and chapped very quickly so this is my savior most colder days! Not only do I love the product because of the name (hehe) but it is one of the best lip products I’ve tried! It’s not greasy or sticky and it doesn’t have any kind of perfume scent! It also has a pinky type of shade so it’s a mix of lip balm and lipstick!

IMAG2909

Witch Blemish Stick

MY skin can have breakouts at any random time so Witch’s Blemish Stick is a literal god send! A quick dab and the beginning of the spot or blemish is stopped. I’ve been using this for about 2 months and my skin is so much better and healthier!

IMAG2908

Collection BB Cream

I am yet to find a foundation that my skin can handle with out drying out..but my savior is this BB cream from Collection! This is literally is my go to instead of foundation. It has perfect coverage and is not to thick or thin. I discovered this when I was in my old job 2 years ago and my day started at 6 am so I needed something quick and easy to apply and this was my answer!!
